Fitness and Health
This is the category if you want apps to help you get fit, eat healthy, stay healthy, and find the medical advice you need when problems arise.
This app records your movement throughout the day: where you went, how many steps you took, and calories you burned. It’s simple, but works really well and connects to other apps.
Enter the weight you want to lose and LoseIt! recommends how many calories you need. Record food and fitness (it has a barcode scanner) and break down the type of calories you’re eating.
RunKeeper wants to motivate you to run. Progress appears on a map and there are audio notifications to spur you on. It will chart your performance, track your distance, and invite friends.
This app lets you look up your symptoms or problems and will quickly connect you with an actual doctor or medical professional if you need it, though we’ve never actually tried this feature.
It’s a hypochondriac’s dream app. WebMD is full of great information about every disease you can think of, and thousands that you’ll never hear of. It’s the standard for medical information.
Want to know what pill you’re holding? This pill identifying app will tell you by running through its shape, color, and other attributes. It’s not a good-looking app, but it’s better than just taking the pill.
Mimi Hearing Test
If you’re uncertain about your hearing then test it yourself with this app. You’ll be able to see at-a-glance what frequencies you are having trouble with and find out how you compare for your age.
Want to up your game? This app lets you record your golf swing, tennis serve, or anything else you would want to analyze in slow motion. You can provide commentary, make annotations, and compare two videos.
Adopting a freemium model, this app lets you record whatever workout you choose and analyze it in slow motion with annotations and commentary. You can also compare your videos with those of professional athletes.
What makes this app stand out from its competition is its focus on team, rather than individual, analysis. While it is more than happy to let you annotate, comment, and analyze your own videos, you can also scout the competition.
